Several different types of intraocular lenses may be used to replace the eye’s natural lens. This acrylic intraocular lens is very small and sits inside the eye after surgery. A single-focus (or monofocal) lens can be implanted, providing clear distance vision, but will require eyeglasses for near and intermediate tasks, such as looking at a cell phone, wristwatch or dashboard, and for astigmatism correction.
To reduce dependency on glasses after cataract surgery, a multifocal intraocular lens can be implanted into the eye. Patients who choose this lens implant service use glasses 1/2 as often as those who chose a monofocal IOL, based on our actual patient outcomes.
Recent advances in IOL technology give cataract patients the option of choosing advanced lens implants that provide a fuller range of vision, unlike the single-focus design of a monofocal lens. Our lifestyle lenses, PanOptix® or IQ Vivity™ and Toric® are designed to improve your vision to see near, far and at all ranges in between, along with one-step correction of astigmatism to improve your distance vision.
The goal of our Advanced Refractive Cataract Surgery option is to offer the newest surgical techniques and the best opportunity to see without glasses for the majority of your day.
